    Default Social Services and Roommates


    I am a single mom with two little kids. I work full-time and receive some support from welfare. I get daycare assistance, food stamps and medicaid. However, I have been thinking about moving into a bigger place for me and my two kids but in order to do so I would have to get a roommate, so I was wondering if and how that would/could affect my benefits. Would I even have to claim their income on my welfare renewal? I have searched all over the internet for help. Please help me.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: Social Services and Roommates

    The manner in which having roommates will affect your benefits depends both upon the nature of the roommate relationship and the type of benefits at issue. Beyond that, as you were told when you posted, laws vary by state. If you're talking about state welfare benefits, ask a case worker at the agency (or agencies) at issue.

    You posted this as a Social Security question - if you are talking about SSI, clarify the living arrangement you anticipate and somebody may be able to clarify how that would affect your benefit.
